3/4 You Never Can Tell
This Tuesday, March 4th, we will be reading YOU NEVER CAN TELL, by George Bernard Shaw.
The play is set in a seaside town and tells the story of Mrs Clandon and her three children, Dolly, Philip and Gloria, who have just returned to England after an eighteen-year stay in Madeira. The children have no idea who their father is, yet they inadvertently end up inviting him to a family lunch. At the same time a dentist named Valentine has fallen in love with the eldest daughter, Gloria. However, Gloria considers herself a modern woman and claims to have no interest in love or marriage. The play continues with a comedy of errors and confused identities, with the friendly and wise waiter, Walter (most commonly referred to by the characters as “William,” because Dolly thinks he resembles Shakespeare), dispensing his wisdom with the titular phrase “You Never Can Tell.”
